Today, Ponca City Medical Center changes its name to AllianceHealth Ponca City and joins the nine other CHS-affiliated hospitals in the state to form AllianceHealth Oklahoma.
One of the state’s largest healthcare systems, AllianceHealth Oklahoma combines the strength, resources and commitment to quality of 10 hospitals, more than 70 clinics, six home health agencies and more than 4,500 employed physicians and employees to serve patients across the state.
“Our new health system leads a fresh, innovative direction for healthcare in Oklahoma and we’re proud to be part of it,” said Andy Wachtel, CEO. “For patients, it means faster ER care in all our hospitals, access to more specialists locally, and even getting a diagnosis and prescription through a video visit with a doctor, anytime. As part of a system of 10 hospitals and more than 70 clinics statewide, AllianceHealth Ponca City and AllianceHealth Blackwell offer patients the strength of an entire network.”
AllianceHealth Oklahoma has more than 1,000 licensed beds in its affiliated hospitals. During 2014, the combined group saw almost 30,000 patient admissions, more than 195,000 emergency department visits and almost 330,000 clinic visits. The hospitals also are economic cornerstones of their communities they serve. In 2014, this included payment of more than $7.8 million in sales and property taxes, and the provision of more than $112 million in uncompensated care.
The hospitals in AllianceHealth Oklahoma are located in Ponca City, Blackwell, Clinton, Deaconess in Oklahoma City, Durant, Madill, Midwest City, Pryor, Seminole and Woodward.
All programs and services of these hospitals are also part of the AllianceHealth Oklahoma family; the physician practices are renamed as AllianceHealth Medical Group.
